Joint Efforts and Cooperation Bring About Remarkable Results of Child Protection

For more than a decade, APLE in cooperation with Cambodian law enforcement and other stakeholders has made a great effort in child protection and the reduction of vulnerability of children in child sexual abuse and exploitation.

In recent years through APLE’s awareness and training program, the capacity of Cambodian National Police (CNP), especially the Anti-Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection (AHTJP) unit, has greatly been improved. Their performance and commitment in child protection have reached a better level.

From the above-mentioned effort and positive change, the number of investigative cases has impressively decreased in the last few years. If compared to the first semester of 2015, in the first semester of 2016 the number of investigative cases decreased 43% whilst the number of perpetrator arrests decreased 33%.
